Merry Mondays: Be Yourself!

As we age, I believe this is so important.  The saying, “You are only as old as you feel,” is actually very true.  I know 20 year olds who act like they are 60 and 60 year olds who are vivacious and who live like a spring chicken!! 🙂 It’s only in our mentality.  I will never […]

Banana Goji Cupcakes with Nutritious “No-Tella” Chocolate Frosting

  One of my favorite sweet treats used to be Nutella!
